Happy #wildlifewednesday the #snowberryclearwingsphinxmothcaterpillar s have been pretty happy this season with the lush new growth after a hard prune this spring, they don't usually touch the flowers but I guess this guy wanted to give them a try, this is exactly why I garden!💚🐛 #caterpillar #caterpillars #caterpillarstinaaune #caterpillarcrazy #mothcaterpillar #caterpillarhostplant #hostplant #honeysuckle #dropmorescarlethoneysuckle

Yes Katy! U should have both hummingbird moth species on your area, host plants for both include: honeysuckle ha wthorn snowberry cherry viburbum & plum, so even if u have one or a few be on the lookout for them, hard to spot because green on green be more on the lookout for frass and then scope the undersides of leaves💚🐛 @gjones remember they over winter in leaf litter on the ground so it's important not to clean up in the fall/spring too much👍

@tinaaune Thanks for the info! From the plant list, we have all but the honeysuckle vine so I'll keep my eye open to see if I can spot any😊
